Annual Golden Spoke Ride

by discoverdavis

The Golden Spoke Ride is an annual cycling event celebrating over 170 miles of safe, separated, and connected multi-use trails linking Ogden and Provo. This network includes Davis County’s Denver and Rio Grande Western (D&RGW) Rail Trail and Legacy Parkway Trail. Join others along the Wasatch Front in celebrating the Golden Spoke route. This is a free event but registration is required.

What’s great about the Golden Spoke Ride is that you don’t have to ride the entire length of any of these routes. You can simply join from multiple trails or paths that are part of this network. If you choose to do the long route, you will find rest stops/refueling stations along the way with snacks and drinks.

  • 3 main routes: (see maps below)
    • South Ride: 75-mile ride from Riverside Park in Provo (Start time: 7:30 am)
    • North Ride: 25-mile ride from the Roy Frontrunner Station (Start time: 10:30 am)
    • Family Ride: 2.5-mile ride from Farmington Pond (Start time: 12:00 pm)

All routes will converge at Farmington Regional Park for an end-of-ride celebration celebrating 20 years since the creation of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Rail Trail (2003). Make sure to pace yourself so you won’t miss this fun event from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the Farmington Regional Park that will include food trucks, giveaways, vendor booths, and more cycling activities.

When: Saturday, May 13
